Still, parents tend to ignore this thought. Dr. Neha says, ‘When the doctor suggest 5ml of medicine for your child, go for measuring caps instead of just assuming your kitchen spoon will hold exactly 5ml of the said medicine’.
That’s a logical point of view. Measuring medicines using teaspoon and tablespoon can go totally wrong as the sizes of these spoons may very house to house. Moreover, the names may be confused. For example, the abbreviations tsp. And tbsp. might get confused and therefore the medicine dosage.
That’s why our paediatrician suggests measuring caps for measuring medicines for children. If you suspect about medicine dosage being given to your child, you should contact a child specialist at the earliest. You can book an appointment with Dr. Neha Bansal by clicking here.
